The airport was modern and fully functioning, but under-utilized with only 1-2 flights a day, both in the morning. Amazingly, the airport grounds and runway were opened up in the evenings to the townspeople as something of a public park. People of all ages would congregate to play football, walk, work out and ride bikes. Though it felt somewhat odd at first to be standing out in the middle of the runway taking pictures, it ended up being one of the more engaging activities and sights I found in town.
